The Twelve Laws of Santa Claus™ is an illustrated book for everyone of any age by Christopher Hogan Lay.
My intention is to inspire children and the parents of children from 4 to 10 to share and discuss the many ways to live a great life. Santa was chosen as a somewhat secular messenger for his ability to influence people of most any age or culture from around the globe.
At this juncture I am just trying to collect a little start up money in order to get as many copies self published for distribution. Any donation you are able to provide would be awesome. Awesome! Thank you.
The hope for this book is that it will be successful beyond the aforementioned age range it was originally intended. A small but inspirational book that will touch the hearts from the youngest of children to the oldest of adults and promote an opportunity for conversation.
This is my first venture into the world of publishing. I am a creative person who feels inspired to find a way to help others and learn along the way. The message of The Twelve Laws of Santa Claus is more important to me than the images I have created for this project. These images, however, can be viewed at TheTwelveLawsofSantaClaus.com on the ABOUT THE BOOK page, on Facebook and Pinterest, as well as any accompanying prints.
The graphics are based upon a 1960’s era Santa Claus found in an Atlanta antique store. Photos were taken and then PhotoShopped. Along with the book, I hope to replicate and market the original image as a plush doll or as an ornament. Perhaps, the “Claus Laws” would be placed on t-shirts, posters, calendars, etc. A website for the book may be created in order to continue a dialogue in which fans of book might discuss which "Laws" may be the most important to them or may ask them to show how they “Believe”. We shall see... If you're gonna dream... DREAM BIG!
My hope is that The Twelve Laws of Santa Claus will be well loved much like The Night Before Christmas and The Elf on the Shelf, not in competition with but as an addition to those examples of the wonderful spirit of Christmas and of unconditional love.
